Exercise 4.1 Fragments

I wanted to avoid the normal grouping of still lives. I wasn’t opposed to doing traditional style lives – but just wanted to play with the set-up really. So because of this I chose traditional still life objects, bottle, fruit, flowers – the usual – but tried to mess a bit with the structure. I…

Assignment three – And another one

As I mentioned last time the printer has managed to speed up some of his processes, and hence this page was reproduced much quicker than before. Now to be fair to the guy, this page was in better condition, with less creasing and foxing. So according to our discussion today, that made it much easier…

Assignment Three – Another clone

This morning I went to the printers to pick up the latest re-print of pages from the Illustrated History of Clowns and Clowning. Because of the high quality of the work the printers are producing, it has worked out very expensive to get it laid out, copied, images made, and then finally printed. Because of…

Assignment 3 – Clones

I am always interested in ‘found’ works – the act of finding, and choosing to present, and present in a certain way making them a certain type of art work. I have used them to some extent in this segment of the course. In 2012 I was browsing through an Oxfam book store in Balham, London. It…

Contact sheets

I realised that for some reason I hadn’t included the contact sheets along with the submissions. I have edited them down as some were nonsense. I was using a remote trigger, so I took some shots, moved myself, took some more shoots, moved again etc. Then I would go, look at images, alter settings, and…

Final submission & explanatory text

These are the assignment images I have submitted to my tutor. Unlike the first assignment there is no requirement for a text-based explanation. However I felt for my records, and based on my previous assessment that some description of what I hoped to achieve, how successful or unsuccessful I felt I was, would be of…

Further plans and notes

I have decided to focus on three Caravaggio paintings. These are Supper at Emmaus, the version in the National Gallery in London; Boy with basket of fruit, from the Gallery Borghese in Rome; and David and Goliath, the version in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. The reason I have decided on 3 is simply a matter…

Tutor feedback

Here is the feedback I received from my tutor. I have since spoken to him for clarification purposes etc. I will do another post about my reaction to the feedback. But here it is anyway. Glover FiP 1

Initial thoughts and plans

This assignment is about taking a considered approach to creating a photograph of a person. You’ll need to take care over your choice of model, their clothes, setting, environmental objects and background. You’ll need a small torch for this assignment. Tape a funnel of black paper over the end of it to act as a…

Final submission & explanatory text

The idea was to show the area I remember best. The area that shaped me. The people that shaped me. However, the area is not the same as I remember it. I may never know an area in such detail, but in actual fact, now I hardly know this area at all. It was all…

Planning & influences

I continued with research and thought processes over the development of Square Mile project. As suggested by the handbook, I looked at  – Tom Hunter and Dan Holdsworth. Both were of value for this project. I also made scribbled notes during reading in books, online and YouTube interviews. I also looked at the work or…
